Cruisin’ the Cosmos – week of April 8 2010


You may fancy yourself a rugged individualist who’d rather go your own way but you did give your word so you’d better suck it up and stay. Besides for fire signs a controlled burn can be a beautiful thing. The forest grows back flora galore which means your flames’ll have more fuel than they did before!


It’s gonna be a tough row to hoe so put your head down and go in the direction you know to be true. Whoever’s holdin’ the reins’ll have somethin’ to say about it too so you can expect a hassle or two. Ain’t that always the way it is when someone at the back thinks they’re drivin’ you? Well the yoke may be on you but the joke’s on them!


Y’know standin’ up for what you believe in is one of the best things you can do but you gotta be careful ’cause you could also get screwed. Why spend all your time energy and money battlin’ for a cause that won’t reimburse you? Sometimes you’re better off to just say "Baby that’s your business" and be on your way!


You can’t run away from your problems forever and the further you go the fatter they get. You may think you’ve outraced ’em when much later in life from outta nowhere this big greasy obese ton o’ trouble will come waddlin’ up to you all huffin’ and puffin’ ready and rarin’ to knock out your stuffin’. Why don’tcha kick its ass now while it’s a 40-kilogram weakling?

LEO (JULY 23 – AUG. 22)

You may have a solid idea of the way things are supposed to be but do yourself a favour and forget it. Not that it ain’t valid — it just ain’t practical. Events are happenin’ way too fast to think about ’em. You need the quick reflexes of a cat to deal with this level of chaos. Hey waitaminnit… ain’t lions a member of the cat family? Purrrfect!

VIRGO (AUG. 23 – SEPT. 22)

Your role in business has expanded but beware big shot! This is a crucial point where most people blow it. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep your critical self bound and gagged this week. However valid your words may be they’ll come back to haunt you… in full 3-D!

LIBRA (SEPT. 23 – OCT. 22)

The recent full moon in your sign signalled a switch into a new cycle for you. Your level of success now is determined by how much you’ve learned about yourself. Hopefully you’re still aware of what needs workin’ on. Why? ‘Cause by this week you’ll be faced full-on with your issues. Save up your strength and you won’t need your tissues!

SCORPIO (OCT. 23 – NOV. 21)

Bein’ that Scorpios are deep folks you get more outta things than most others. Take this week for example. You’ll be workin’ away at what you think is a mundane task when all of a sudden it’ll transform into a thing of beauty that holds a message for you of your place and function in this vast universe. This will only inspire you to grow and — as you’ll soon see — the deeper the roots the taller the tree!


Now there’s nothin’ wrong with bein’ a ruthless schemer who wants to climb the stairway to success. Hey it’s all just sittin’ there for whoever’s got the gumption to grab it so why shouldn’t you? You’ll have no problem as long as you can be cold as steel ’cause their only weapon against you is what you feel — don’t even think about tryin’ if you’re not down with that deal!


Some call you stingy but really you’re bein’ prudent. You can’t just give a piece to everybody can you? Besides it’s not like you hold out on people who deserve it either. Persevere on this path and you’ll be repaid with peace of mind and the power that comes from it’ll get you out of some binds!

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 – FEB. 18)

You can’t get upset about somethin’ as natural as night. Yes it’s dark. Sure you bump into a lotta stuff. No you can’t see what’s lurking out there. So? You’ve gotta make peace with it ’cause it happens each day so consistently remind yourself the sunrise is on its way!


You easily pick up on what’s goin’ on around you. In fact you pick up so much your psychic arms are almost always full. That’s why it seems you’re somewhere else when you’re usually more immersed in the situation than anyone there. Since you’ve got so much on your mind this week’s helpful hint will be very simple: lazy bad make sad. Work good make glad.
